I am 15 in July I fell in love with sewing. I finished my first garment in September. Right now I am on vacation, so I have been working very hard to get a bodice sloper done before I go back to school. Unfortunateky it never turns out right. My parents say I should put as much effort into schoolwork as I do into sewing. I have a very long schoolday plus a lot of work so now that I am off I sew. Do you think spending untold hours on a project is going overboard? My mom then ridicules the garments I make which is very hurtful. My parents have held a disdain for my love of sewing ever sinceJuly, when I did not even have school. Can someone advise me on this! It is very upsetting. Also any tips for cutting jersey knit?
